Suppose is a pedagogic action, part of "Other Ways Project" initialized by Allan Kaprow and Herbert Kohl.
This action took place in several halls of primary schools, one could discover the enigmatic image of the poster of a classroom emptied of students and the teacher associated with the direct address just as mysterious that called for action: SUPPOSE.
The subtitles gave some indications such as: "ASSUME ... that you use graffiti as a text, "ASSUME ... that you can not write and that you can only take pictures", "ASSUME ... that you only have to make music with an elastic".
After the unsuccessful attempts by Allan Kaprow to New York schools and universities, "Other Ways Project" received consistent financial support from Carnegie Corporation of New York"
.

Suppose.…
"– You had to make music with only a rubber band"; "- You were given the elements of a game and had to create the rules"; "- You had to write your own Dick and Jane"; "- You discovered the mythology of everyday life"; "You use graffiti as a text book"; "- You saw hotrods and dragsters as moving sculpture"; "- You couldn't write and could only take pictures"; "- You saw basket ball as a dance"; "- You could find architecture in a junk yard".
